GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 



ORGANIZATION. 

The only change in the membership of the Board during the 
last fiscal year was the retirement of Mr. Laban Pratt on 
June 7, 1909, and the appointment of Mrs. Ada Eliot Sheffield 
as his successor. 

Mr. Pratt was a member of the Board from December 24, 
1889, a period of nearly twenty years, and was Vice-Chairman 
during the last three years of his service. He was constant in 
attendance at the meetings, wise in his counsels, and scrupu- 
lously faithful in the performance of his official duties. His 
fellow-members miss his genial presence, and greatly regret the 
necessity of his withdrawal. 

Two deaths of former members have occurred during the 
year: Mr. Ziba C. Keith, who gave intelligent and efficient ser- 
vice from January 1, 1890, to June 11, 1891, — the date of his 
voluntary retirement; and Mr. George W. Johnson, who was 
originally appointed December 4, 1889, and resigned September 
1, 1903, and was for several years the Board's Chairman. Mr. 
Johnson had previously served as a member of the Trustees of 
the Lyman and Industrial Schools, then entitled the State 
Primary and Reform Schools. He was greatly interested in all 
charity w^ork, for which he was well fitted both by nature and 
experience, and was especially concerned with the welfare of the 
children of the State and the improvement of methods for their 
care and treatment. Members of the Board who served with 
him unite with all other persons formerly associated with him 
in charitable Avork in their appreciation of his exceptionally 
valuable and generous services. 

The membership of the Board is now as follows : —

a. Visitation, 

The direct visitation of the institutions is made by committees 
and members of the Board and by the several officers of the 
Board, as directed in the by-laws. The results of this visitation, 
with one exception, are given on pp. SI et seq. of this part of 
the Report. The exception is the work of almshouse inspection, 
recounted at length in Part III., which may be summarized as 
follows : — 

During the official year every almshouse has been visited once 
by the inspector ; 12 have been visited twice, 10 three times and 
1 four times. In addition to this, the inspector has conferred 
with Overseers of the Poor, or their representatives, of 45 differ- 
ent cities and towns, regarding matters of almshouse condition 
and management. Members of the Board have made a number 
of visits, and the volunteer women visitors have continued their 
excellent work. The inspector has put himself into communica- 
tion with the majority of these visitors, and is assured of their 
interest and the welfare of the almshouse inmates. They have 
already done the inmates a great deal of good in various ways, 
and for their kind and unselfish labor there can be only words 
of the heartiest commendation. 

In investigating complaints and helping to adjust difficulties 
between inmates and the managers, the inspector has met with 
ready cooperation on the part of both overseers and wardens. 
At some almshouses inmates are encouraged to work at little 
tasks, such as rug making, lace making, cobbling shoes, etc. 
What sums are earned in this way the inmates are always 
allowed to keep. At three almshouses visitors' books are kept, a 
custom deserving commendation and one that should be widely 
extended. A number of consumptives hitherto provided for in 
almshouses have been admitted to the recently opened State 
Sanatorium at ^orth Reading. Too many alcoholic cases are 
provided for in some of the almshouses. A combination plan 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 9 

for the establishiuent of an almshouse in common for a number 
of the Hampshire County towns' is under consideration. 

At Brockton an addition to the almshouse has been built, 
from plans provided by the Board, at a total expenditure, includ- 
ing furnishings, of about $8,400. Repairs and improvements at 
the following almshouses are worthy of mention, — in a number 
of these cases the changes consisted only of papering, painting 
and other minor repairs, but in several instances new heating 
plants, new methods of lighting and other more substantial im- 
provements were provided: Adams, Agawam, Amesbury, Ash- 
burnham, Ashby, xVshfield, Athol, Attleborough, Bellingham, 
Beverly, Billerica, Boston, Charlestown, Boxford, Braintree, 
Brimfield, Brookfield, Brookline, Canton, Chelmsford, Chicopee, 
Concord, Dartmouth, Dedham, Easton, Falmouth, Framingham, 
Franklin, Grafton, Greenfield, Greenwich, Hanover, Hanson, 
Haverhill, Hingham, Ipswich, Lancaster, Lawrence, Leominster, 
Lowell, Maiden, Manchester, Mansfield, Marblehead, Marl- 
borough, Mattapoisett, Melrose, Middleborough, Milford, Mil- 
ton, Monson, Montague, jSTorth Adams, Northampton, North 
Andover, Northbridge, North Reading, Palmer, Peabody, Pep- 
perell, Pittsfield, Plymouth, Quincy, Randolph, Rockland, 
Salem, Saugus, Sharon, Shutesbury, Somerville, Southbridge, 
Spencer, Springfield, Stow, Sutton, Tewksbury, Uxbridge, 
Wareham, West Boylston, West Bridgewater, Westford, West- 
port, Woburn, Worcester. 

At Easthampton a better water supply is urgent ; Gloucester, 
Mansfield and Woburn need new buildings ; and Wellesley 
should either have a new building or extensively repair and 
imjn-ove the old one. Marshfield needs general repairs and 
renovation. 

Almshouse salaries average about $1,258 per annum for the 
cities, and about $470 for the towns. The greatest length of 
service in any one place is that of Waltham, where the warden 
and matron have served twenty-seven years ; at Concord, Lexing- 
ton and Somerset there has been a like service of twenty-five 
years; at Lee and Pittsfield, of twenty-four years; at Haverhill, 
of twenty-two years ; at Hingham, of nineteen years ; at Cohasset, 
of sixteen years; and at Leominster and ^Fonson, of fourteen 
years.

Xurses are regularly employed in thirteen cases only. It 
appears to the Board that in every case of serious illness where 
hospital care is not available, the services of a nurse should be 
procured. 

Of the 189 almshouses, 159 have buildings wholly of wood, 
15 of brick, 1 of stone and wood, 12 of brick and wood, 1 of 
brick and stone, and 1 of brick, wood, and stone. In 118 
almshouses, one or more sitting-rooms are provided for the use 
of inmates ; 3 use corridors for sitting-rooms ; and 48 use dining- 
rooms. There is in all a total of 174 sitting-rooms and 3,238 
sleeping-rooms, in addition to 53 wards, and 54 dormitories, with 
6,194 beds. In 113 almshouses there are fully equipped bath- 
rooms, 17 having shower baths also; in 17 the bath-rooms are 
partly equipped, and 42 have no bath-rooms ; there being in all a 
total of 329 fully equipped bath-rooms and 19 partly equipped. 
In 117 there are water-closets. In 13 the heating is by hot air, 
in 19 by hot water, in 105 by steam, in 40 by stoves, in 1 by hot 
water and steam, in 3 by hot air and steam, in 1 by hot air and 
hot water, in 3 by hot air and stoves, and in 4 by steam and 
stoves. Oil furnishes light for 126, electricity for 50, gas for 4, 
oil and candles for 4, electricity and oil for 2, and gas and elec- 
tricity for 3. Fire-escapes appear to be provided in all cases 
where they are a matter of importance. In 167 almshouses 
there are fire extinguishers or other special methods of protec- 
tion against fire, and in 22 there is no such provision. In 83 
almshouses special hospital accommodations are provided either 
by setting apart one or more rooms, or, in a few instances, by 
separate buildings. 

The whole number of inmates of all the almshouses during the 
year was 10,025 ; the largest number at any one time was 5,526, 
and the smallest number 4,111. The number at the time of 
visitation was 4,539, viz., 2,600 men, 1,810 women and 129 
children ; the largest number in any one almshouse being 873, in 
Boston (Long Island), and the smallest, 1. Among the other 
almshouses with large populations may be mentioned Lowell, 
with 347 ; Fall River, with 262 ; Lawrence, with 182 ; Worcester, 
with 155; Cambridge, with 136; Springfield, with 123; Hol- 
yoke, with 120; 'New Bedford, with 114; and Boston (Charles- 
town), with 102. The ages of the inmates of all the almshouses 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 11 

were as follows : sixty-one under 2 ; twenty-five between 2 and 
5 ; twenty-one between 5 and 15 ; twenty-three between 15 and 
21; one hundred and twenty-four between 21 and 30; two 
hundred and eighty-four between 30 and 40 ; five hundred and 
fifteen between 40 and 50 ; nine hundred and nine between 
50 and 60 ; eleven hundred and fifty-two between 60 and 70 ; 
one thousand and twelve between 70 and 80 ; three hundred 
and sixty-three between 80 and 90; thirty-six between 90 and 
100; one over 100; or, under a different grouping, one hundred 
and thirty were under 21 years of age; four hundred and eight 
between 20 and 40 ; fourteen hundred and twenty-four between 
40 and 60; two thousand five hundred and sixty-four 60 and 
over. In 53 of the almshouses there was a complete separation 
of the sexes ; in 34 the sexes were separated at night only ; in 44 
they were separated except at meals; in 31 there was no separa- 
tion; and in 27 the inmates were all of one sex. Of the whole 
number, 4,093 were reported as permanent, and 446, or about 
one-ninth of the whole, as temporary ; 2,049 were stated to have 
relatives in town. Board was paid by friends, or by themselves, 
for a total of 165 inmates. 

In 147 almshouses there was a total of 986 defective inmates, 
of whom 119 were reported as idiotic, 53 epileptic, 645 cripples, 
102 blind, 14 idiotic and cripples, 10 idiotic and epileptic, 1 
idiotic, blind and cripple, 1 idiotic and blind, 17 epileptic and 
cripples, 2 epileptic and feeble-minded, 16 deaf and dumb, 3 
blind and cripples, 1 blind and dumb, 2 dumb. 

In 20 almshouses 123 consumptive cases were found, — about 
two-thirds of them in Boston. All but 15 of these patients were 
entirely separated from the other inmates, and received special 
treatment and diet. 

The number of vagrants was steadily reduced from 15,491 
in 89 almshouses, four years ago; 7,900 in 61 almshouses, three 
years ago; 3,127 in 26 almshouses, two years ago; to 423 in 26 
almshouses, one year ago ; but during the last year 35 almshcnises 
reported a total of 523 vagrants. 

In connection with the almshouses was a total of 17,171 acres, 
of which 1,742 were ploughed and 4,577 tilled.

h. Publication. 

In addition to its full Annual Report, of which 2,000 copies 
are printed, there are issued under the law, for the use of the 
Board, 500 copies of so much of the Report as relates to the 
city and town almshouses and statistics of paupers supported by 
cities and towns, and 1,000 copies of so much as relates to returns, 
made by certain charitable corporations. 

The Pauper Abstract, to be found in Part III. of the Report,, 
furnishes many details respecting the poor supported or relieved 
by the cities and towns of the State, gathered from the annual 
returns made to the Board by Overseers of the Poor, and from 
the published town reports. Notwithstanding acknowledged im- 
perfections in both these sources of information, the results of 
this careful examination and analysis, as presented in the ab- 
stract year by year, show a degree of uniformity which justifies 
confidence in their substantial correctness. The figures concern- 
ing persons aided, their classification and the sort of aid 
rendered, relate strictly to the year ending March 31, 1909 ; as. 
regards pauper expenditures, while each city or town account 
covers but a full year, the year covered in the majority of cases 
is the recent town year as given in the town reports, which end 
at various dates from the beginning of the calendar year to 
April. The total expenses, therefore, as presented in these tables, 
do not cover the precise year to which the report of persons 
applies, and cannot be made to do so until the establishment of a 
uniform town year and a uniform system of accounts. It is 
to be hoped this will not be long deferred. 

The abstract shows that the whole number of different persons, 
either fully or partially supported within the year, excluding 
vagrants, was 78,123, of whom 12,581 were fully supported. 
The corresponding number for 1907-8 was 69,161, of whom 
12,084 were fully supported. This is an increase of 8,962, or 
about 13 per cent., in the whole number, and of 497, or 4 per 
cent., in full support. The average number fully supported was 
6,665, against 6,440 in 1907-08, an increase of 225, or over 
3% per cent. ; yet the number remaining for support March 31, 
1909, was but 6,395, against 6,772 the year before. This 
marked decrease at the end of the year was occasioned by the 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 13 

legislation of 1908 (chapter G29), which transferred from town 
to State support about 450 epileptic or feeble-minded inmates 
of the State institutions for these defectives. But for this, the 
numbers would have indicated some increase. 

Of the average number, — 6,665, fully supported, — 4,837 
were in the town almshouses ; 754 in various institutions, mainly 
State institutions; and 1,074 in private families; as compared 
with 1907-08, in almshouses, 4,533 ; in institutions, 893 ; and in 
private families, 1,014 ; an increase of 304 in almshouses, and 
60 in private families ; but a decrease of 139 in institution 
cases, the latter from the cause above referred to. Thus the gen- 
eral average of full support, which would otherwise show an 
increase of from 5 to 6 per cent., as in 1907-08, was increased, 
as before stated, by 3% per cent. only. 

The number receiving temporary aid or partial support was 
66,295 ; or, deducting 753 who also received full support a part 
of the year and were so counted, 65,542, or 8,465 more than in 
1907-08, an increase of 15 per cent. ; the estimated average 
number being 22,040, or larger than in 1907-08 by 3,296, or 
l7l/> per cent. 

Vagrants are reported to the number of 32,798, a daily aver- 
age of 90. Xearly nine-tenths of them are reported by the city 
of Boston, whose so-called " lodgers," counted as vagrants, in- 
clude very many who are homeless rather than tramps. It is 
doubtful if full report is made of the vagrant class, because 
overseers are liable to report only such as come under their 
official cognizance, while to a large extent tramps are provided 
for by the police departments, who make no report to this 
Board. By the figures given there has been a trifling decrease 
in the number of this class. 

The current expenditures by cities and towns during the year 
for the support and relief of the poor were $2,698,382, against 
$2,484,740 in 1907-08 ; of which sum $1,135,201 was expended 
at the almshouses, $152,140 at other institutions, and $146,033 
for support in families; making a total of $1,433,373 for full 
supi)ort, besides $1,036,006 for partial support and $229,003 
for a<lministrati()n. These expenditures were diminislKMl l)y 
receipts and reimbursements to the amount of $557,781, leav- 
ing the net expense for the year $2,140,601, as against $1,983,- 



14 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

871 in 1907-08; an increase of $156,730, or nearly 8 per cent.. 
The $1,036,006 expended for relief to the 66,295 partially sup- 
ported would allow to each person $15.87; the corresponding 
amount for 1907-08 would be $15.47. Until within a few years 
past, the allowance was about $12.50. 

The net cost of the poor in the town almshouses during the 
year has been $827,636, or $65,211 more than for the previous 
year. The average number of paupers at the almshouses hav- 
ing been 4,837, the weekly per capita cost was $3.29, or 5 cents 
above that of 1907-08. The net cost at other institutions was 
$145,543, for an average number of 754, giving a weekly rate- 
of $3.71 ; and support in private families cost $141,803 for an. 
average of 1,074, a weekly rate of $2.58, or 8 cents above that 
of 1907-08. 

As a whole, the returns show the net expense to the cities and 
towns of supporting or relieving 78,123 persons, including 
$229,003 for expenses of administration, was $2,140,601,, 
against $1,983,871 for 69,191 persons in the previous year, an 
increase of $156,730, or almost 8 per cent, in expenses, and 
13 per cent, in the numbers relieved. For the past year, as for 
its predecessor, the expenses did not increase as much as the 
numbers. 

State adult poor, apart from the insane or criminal class 
who are supported in association with them, are chiefly found 
at the State Infirmary and the State Farm, where all are main- 
tained at common expense. The real State pauper class at these 
two institutions the past year has averaged 1,700 as against 
1,609 in 1907-08; and their approximate cost to the State has 
been $290,000, as compared with $257,232 in 1907-08. Add- 
ing these to the figures given before for the town paupers, we 
have a total average of State and town poor fully supported of 
8,365, at an approximate cost amounting to $1,405,000. Those 
partially supported at charge of the State are theoretically in- 
cluded in the corresponding class of town's poor ; all public out- 
door relief, State as well as town, being given through Overseers 
of the Poor. 

In Part II of the Report are given abstracts of the reports of 
charitable corporations whose personal property is exempt from 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 15 

taxation, the reports being made annually to the Board, under 
the law. Of these corporations, — nearly 600 in number, — 
only 14 failed to report, as compared with 43 so failing the 
previous year, and 68 the year before that; this result being- 
largely due to the increased activity of the Board in the matter. 
Of the remainder, 39 reported that they were not in active 
operation, and 14 that they had not completed their first year,, 
and therefore could not make full reports. 

From the remaining 516 corporations, substantially complete 
reports were received. Their total valuation was $56,370,- 
865.08, viz., property owned and occupied for corporate pur- 
poses, $24,671,840.98; investments, $31,699,865.08. Their 
chief sources of income were: subscriptions and donations, $2,- 
106,431.61; bequests, $995,352.15; income from investments, 
$1,556,114.30; paying and partly paying beneficiaries, $2,075,- 
776.45; sales and entertainments, $127,646.77; industries, 
$554,763.85. Their chief items of expense were: salaries and 
wages, $2,194,441.25 ; provisions and supplies, $2,174,449.06 ,- 
repairs and improvements, $619,300.99. Their total disburse- 
ments were $7,856,363.38. The whole number of beneficiaries- 
reported was 913,401, besides 4,486 families and 30 corpora- 
tions. Of the individual beneficiaries, 171,372 were aided free, 
the remaining 742,029 either paying or partly paying for the 
services rendered. The total number of employees, to whom the 
amount of $2,194,441.25 was paid in the form of salaries and 
wages, was 6,797. Hospitals, homes, and institutions of a like 
nature, providing beds for their beneficiaries, reported a total 
of 15,123 beds. 

In addition to the information hitherto obtained from these 
corporations, the Board has recently endeavored to secure statis- 
tics regarding the number of beneficiaries received and dis- 
charged by the several corporations during the year, and the 
number at the beginning and the end of the year, as well as 
the total number aided during the year ; also the number simi- 
larly aided outside of the institutions. For purposes of compari- 
son and tabulation the result is of little or no value, for two 
reasons: first, because many of the organizations do not keep 
their records in such a manner as to enable them to furnish all 
the required figures ; and second, because a very larire proportion 



16 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

of them give only one kind of aid, — that is, either wholly in- 
stitutional or wholly outside aid. So far as many of the insti- 
tutions are individually concerned, however, the figures are well 
worth consideration. It is also to be noted that the new method 
has brought out a total report of a far larger number of bene- 
ciaries than heretofore, apparently because it has led to the 
<?ounting of out-patients of hospitals and other like institutions 
not formerly included in the number aided. 

The publication of these reports is not primarily or chiefly 
for the purpose of statistical information. It is for the purpose 
of acquainting persons interested, and the public in general, 
with the several charitable associations throughout the State; 
in other words, it is for the purpose of issuing a directory of 
Charities for the State, in very much the same way as has been 
done for many years by the !N^ew York State Board of Charities 
for the charitable associations of that State. A tabulation of 
the corporations, with the chief items of their work, might be 
added to the present Report, and would undoubtedly be of con- 
siderable use, but it would greatly increase the size and expense 
of the Report. 

c. Legislation. 

The principal recommendations of the Board for legislative 
action during the year were as follows : — 

1. Amendment of the laws relating to the Massachusetts 
State Sanatorium. 

2. Amendment of the Act establishing the Industrial School 
for Boys. 

3. Amendment of laws regarding diseases dangerous to the 
public health. 

4. Investigation regarding the removal of the insane inmates 
of the State Infirmary. 

5. Provision for the investigation of private charitable cor- 
porations. 

6. Provision for investigation as to the need of licensing pri- 
vate hospitals, sanatoriums, dispensaries, and clinics.

28 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Of the two principal recommendations of the Board for legis- 
lative action during the present session, the first is embodied in 
the following bill : — 

An Act to amend section five of chapter one hundred and 

twenty-five of the revised laws. 
Be it enacted, etc., as follows: 

Section five of chapter one hundred and twenty-five of the Ee- 
vised Laws is hereby amended so as to read as follows : — Section 5. 
Before making and issuing a certificate for the incorporation of a 
charitable corporation, the secretary of the commonwealth shall 
also forward such statement as is described in the preceding section 
to the state board of charity, which shall immediately make an in- 
vestigation as to the persons who have asked to be incorporated and 
as to the purposes of the incorporation, and any other material 
facts relative thereto, and shall give them a public hearing, notice 
of which shall be published once a week for three successive weeks, in 
some paper published in the county in which the corporation is to 
have its principal office or rooms, and if said office or rooms are to be 
in Boston, in some Boston daily paper, the last publication to be at 
least three days before the day set for the hearing. If the state 
board of charity after such hearing shall approve of such incorpora- 
tion they shall so certify to the secretary of the commonwealth, 
and no certificate of incorporation shall be issued by the secretary 
of the commonwealth without such approval. If he refuses to 
issue his certificate, the persons asking to be incorporated may 
appeal to the superior court, which shall hear the case and finally 
determine whether or not the certificate of incorporation shall be 
issued. 

The second recommendation is in connection with the Resolve, 
cited above, directing the Board to investigate and report as to 
the need of licensing private hospitals, sanatoriums, dispensaries, 
and clinics. 

Following the passage of this Resolve, the Board instituted 
a series of inquiries for the purpose of securing the information 
required. Circular letters were sent to Associated Charities 
and societies of a kindred character in the several cities of the 
State, and advice was sought from the District Medical Societies 
throughout the Commonwealth, as well as from individuals in- 
terested in the matter. From the replies received, — with their 
detailed statements of existing abuses and their recommenda- 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 29 

tions for legislative action, — as well as from facts within its 
own knowledge, the Board is abundantly satisfied of the urgent 
need of further restriction and oversight of the organizations 
concerned. 

In the year 1892 (Acts of 1892, chapter 318), a law was 
passed providing for the licensing of infant boarding-houses- 
by the State Board of Charity. This law, rigidly and per- 
sistently enforced, has proved of such value that the practice 
of '' baby-farming," with its deplorable results, has very nearly 
ceased. It seems especially timely that this law be now supple- 
mented by providing for State licensing of the class of hospitals 
known as '^ lying-in hospitals." 

The Board recommends that legislative action be taken pro- 
viding : — 

First, that all private lying-in hospitals be subject to license 
by the State Board of Charity. 

Second, that all other private hospitals, and all private sana- 
toriums, dispensaries, and clinics, be subject to license by the 
State Board of Health. 

The State Ijvstitutions. 

The State institutions under the supervision of the Board are : 
the State Hospital, at Tewksbury; the State Farm, at Bridge- 
water; the Lyman School for Boys, at Westborough; the State 
Industrial School for Girls, at Lancaster; the Massachusetts 
State Sanatorium, at Rutland; the Massachusetts Hospital 
School, at Canton; the Industrial School for Boys, at Shirley; 
the North Reading State Sanatorium ; the Lakeville State Sana- 
torium ; and the Westfield State Sanatorium. 

The State Hospital and the State Farm arc under the direc- 
tion of the following Board of Trustees : John B. Tivnan, Sa- 
lem, Chairman; Payson W. Lyman, Fall River, Secretary; 
Joseph A. Smart, Andover; Mrs. Anna F. Prcscott, Boston; 
Leonard Huntress, M.D., Lowell; Emery ]\I. Lowe, Brockton;

Getchell, M.D., Worcester; Arthur Drinkwater, Cambridge; 
and Charles H. Adams, Melrose, representing the State Board 
of Charity; and Charles H. Porter, Quincy, representing the 
State Board of Health. As soon as all three Sanatoriums were 
established, ^Ir. Adams and Mr. Porter retired, and the remain- 
ing members of the Commission became the Trustees, both of 
these Sanatoriums, and of the Massachusetts State Sanatorium 
at Rutland.

The care and treatment of patients suffering with tuberculo- 
sis has become an important feature of this institution. There 
can be no comparison as to results between the consumptive 
wards here and at the Sanatoriimi at Rutland. At the latter 
institution, preference is given to the incipient cases, the more 
advanced being admitted only when there are not a sufficient 
number of applicants in the first stages of the disease to fill 
the vacant beds. Again, the Rutland patients are from the 
better class of homes, and accustomed to ordinary good living 
and comfortable surroundings. The object there is two-fold: 
first, to send the patient back to his home with his disease ar- 
rested or cured ; and second, the education of the community ; 
for every person who has taken the treatment there with any 
degree of benefit is ready and even eager to disseminate, not 
only among his relatives and friends, but among all with whom 
he may come in contact, the methods of prevention and cure 
which are there so successfully employed. At Tewksbury the 
conditions are entirely different. The great majority of the 
patients here are in most instances without permanent homes, 
often alcoholic, either moderately or far advanced in tubercu- 
losis, and with a vitality so low that favorable results can hardly 
be expected except in a very few instances. Under such cir- 
cumstances, we can only hope that a few, at least, may be so 
benefited as to be able to return to their homes and become self- 
supporting. But Tewksbury is doing a great work in segre- 
gating this class from the communities to which they are a 
constant menace. 

'Ro department of the State Infirmary has shown such marked 
progress as its tuberculosis wards. Prior to the opening of the 
hospital for male consumptives, September 30, 1900. no classifi- 
cation or segregation of these cases was possible. This build- 
ing has accommodations for 100 beds. A wing, with 50 more 
beds, has since been added, and an appropriation was passed 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 



33 



by the Legislature of 1909 for yet another wing, with 50 more 
beds. In addition to this, there are three shacks, each accom- 
modating 24 patients. In January, 1908, a hospital for con- 
sumptive women, with 40 beds, was opened, and the Legislature 
of 1909 appropriated $14,500 to double its capacity. 

One great difficulty ^dth the patients at this institution is the 
lack of authority for their forcible detention. Excepting cases 
of syphilis, in the inoculating stages, no inmate can be denied 
his release if he demands it, and he commits no misdemeanor 
if he absconds, unless he becomes an applicant for public relief 
within one year from the date of his absconding. The con- 
sumptive is characteristically hopeful, and, when many of these 
patients by careful nursing and proper nourishment have gained 
flesh and feel somewhat stronger, they are anxious to get back 
to old conditions, and, against the advice of the medical super- 
visors and the agents of the Board, they run away. Thirty per 
cent, of the consumptives, however, never leave the hospital until 
they are carried to their graves. 

With all this accommodation for consumptives, there are now 
76 of them in the general wards of the institution and for this 
reason the Board is deterred from removing thereto many cases 
from local hospitals and camps, where the expense is double 
the cost to the Commonwealth. The increase in consumptives 
at Tewksbury in the last ten years is sho^vn by the following 
table : —

34 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

These facts do not signify an increase in the prevalence of 
the disease, but they demonstrate conclusively that even persons 
from the lowest strata of life are seeking relief, owing to the 
activities of the various anti-tuberculosis associations of the 
State. 

The great trouble with some of our institution authorities is 
their failure, notwithstanding years of experience, to appreciate, 
even approximately, future conditions. The average time that 
elapses from the date when the appropriation for new buildings 
or extensions is available, to their completion, ready for occu- 
pancy, is a period of two years. For example, the appropria- 
tion for a new wing to the consumptive hospital for males, an 
imperative need, was granted by the Legislature of 1909, and 
was available in June of that year, yet at last advices its con- 
struction had not even been commenced. This wing will pro- 
vide for 50 patients, but, as noted above, there are 26 more than 
that number who are now in the general wards of the institution. 

^ext in importance to the complete isolation of the contagious 
from the non-contagious inmates is the separation of the chil- 
dren from the contaminating influence of the adult population. 
The Legislature of 1907 appropriated the sum of $80,000 for 
the construction of a children's ward. This will afford accom- 
modations for 80 to 90 children, 12 to 15 mothers, and their 
necessary nurses and attendants. This building is not yet ready 
for occupancy, and it is now nearly three years since the appro- 
priation was available. The location of this ward, in rather 
close proximity to the piggery, is a very objectionable feature, 
but it is the intention of the Superintendent to remove the pig- 
gery to another part of the grounds. This should be done with- 
out delay. 

The addition to the nurses' home, for which an appropriation 
was made by the Legislature of 1909, has not yet been com- 
menced. The same is true of the construction of two wings to 
the consumptive hospital for women, which will double its pres- 
ent capacity. 

The addition to the laundry is about two-thirds completed. 

The inmates' kitchen and dining-room buildings, which have 
been under construction for some time, are nearly completed. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 35 

This will give three additional dining-rooms, practically a new 
kitchen, a flour cellar, a vegetable cellar, a scullery, a milk room, 
a bread room, an extension to the bakery, and a new meat and 
cutting room in connection with the cold storage department. 

The three unsightly wooden isolation wards, which occupied 
a prominent place on the hill, have been removed to the west 
side of Livingstone Street, and put into condition for occupancy 
by the paid employees. 

The old wooden fences have nearly all been removed, and 
strong wire netting, with artistic stone posts at intervals, erected. 
This adds greatly to the appearance of the grounds. 

The conditions that go to make up a satisfactory institution 
have much improved during the past year. The Board has 
urged upon the Trustees all possible speed in the completion 
of the new buildings and additions provided for by the State. 

The worst class of inmates that we have to deal with in this 
institution is the ^' alcoholic." Hundreds of this class, having 
wasted their earnings in intoxicants, and finding themselves not 
only physically enfeebled but mentally impaired, apply for care 
and treatment to the Overseers of the Poor of the principal 
cities, and are sent here to recuperate. In a few days or weeks 
they have regained their normal condition, and demand their 
release, and, if this is denied, they abscond, only to reappear, 
under similar conditions, again and again. It is a question 
deserving serious consideration whether they are not proper 
subjects for a sentence by the court, rather than for charity. 

The question of the discharge of many women who are 
obliged to avail themselves of the maternity department of the 
institution has, for a long time, been a difficult problem. In 
many instances they have neither reliable relatives nor res])ect- 
able friends to whom it is wise for them to turn for assistance, 
and, without supervision, they naturally drift back to their 
old associates. The women members of the Board are interest- 
ing themselves in this matter, with the uplifting aim of keeping 
mother and child together, and the economic purpose of di- 
minishing the number of births of such children as will become 
dependents u])()n the State. 

In consequence of bettor industrial and also better climatic

conditions, durinfr the past Fall, which have permitted the em- 
ployment of unskilled labor upon public work, there has been a 
smaller number of admissions to the Infirmary during the year 
than for the two years immediately preceding. 

A better dietary, rendered necessary by the increasing num- 
ber of hospital cases, has increased the per capita cost from 
$3.39 in 1908 to $3.64. 

The name of the institution has been successively changed 
from the State Almshouse, — the original designation, — to 
State Hospital, and State Infirmary. It remains, however, the 
almshouse for the State, where paupers having no local settle- 
ment are cared for. A comparatively small number of this 
class are also cared for at the State Farm at Bridgewater. 

The Trustees, in view of the fact that there are appropria- 
tions available for new buildings and extensions, which have 
not yet been commenced, have presented no estimates for new 
special appropriations this year, although they renew their rec- 
ommendations for enlargement of the administration building, 
for a chapel, and for wooden barracks for certain classes of in- 
mates who come for shelter during the cold weather. 

The Board approves the Trustees' estimate of $388,000 for 
the current year, viz., salaries, wages, and labor. $110,000; 
other expenses, $278,000.

The total running expenses for the year were $308,999.40, 
viz., salaries, wages, and labor, $83,014.99; other expenses, 
$225,984.41. Average net weekly cost per capita, $2.52. Val-

There has been but little change in the number of drunkards 
and vagrants committed to the institution during the past year. 
Practically the same proportion of them, or about 17 per cent., 
have violated the conditions of their parole, — some once, and 
some two or three times. The greater part of these prisoners 
have been previously before the courts many times, have been 
released on the payment of small fines, or have been incarcerated 
in the various houses of correction for short periods. There is 
no uniformity, however, in the practice of the courts in these 
cases, and in a number of instances courts commit these petty 
criminals to the State Farm for their first offence. 

There is no question that the system of supervision of paroled 
prisoners by the Board's volunteer visitors, which has been in 
operation since July 1, 1905, has been productive of very good 
results ; but the necessity of keeping a closer oversight of these 
offenders, especially in and around Boston, is becoming more 
and more apparent, and the Board has decided to secure a paid 
supervising parole visitor, who will devote his entire time to 
this work. He will early acquaint himself with the mental, 
physical, and moral character of the prisoners under his super- 
vision, study their home conditions, and interest himself in 
securing employment for them. The question of gratuity will 
be left to his discretion. It has l)een the custom, hitherto, to 



38 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

give each prisoner the sum of one dollar on his release ; but in 
the future each case will be considered by itself, and the gratu- 
ity will be given in accordance with the needs and circumstances. 
It would be unwise to spend energy and money on most of the 
old offenders, who have no one dependent upon them, and who 
have neither the desire nor the physical vigor necessary for 
reformation; but for the rest, and they are no inconsiderable 
number, increasingly good results may be reasonably expected. 
The Board has recently amended the Rules regarding pris- 
oners paroled from the State Farm. The law and the rules 
and regulations are now as follows : — 

Revised Laws, Chapter So. 

Sectiox 37. In imposing a sentence of imprisonment at the 
state farm, the court or trial justice shall not fix or limit the dura- 
tion thereof. "\Mioever is sentenced to the state farm for drunken- 
ness may be there held in custody for not more than one year, and 
whoever is so sentenced for any other offence may be there held in 
custody for not more than two years, except as provided in section 
thirty-three. 

Sectiox 38. If it appears to the state board of charity that a 
person serving a sentence at the state farm has reformed, it may, 
upon such conditions as it may determine, issue to him a permit to 
be at liberty for the residue of the period for which he might be 
held, and may revoke it at any time previous to its expiration. 

Sectiox 39. ^ Upon the revocation of such permit, said board 
may issue an order for the return of the holder thereof to the state 
farm, which may be served by any officer authorized to serve 
criminal process. Upon his return to the state farm, the holder 
of such permit shall be detained for the residue of the term for which 
he might be held under the provisions of section thirty-seven and 
the time between his release on permit and said return shall not be 
considered as any part of said term : or, if subsequent to such return 
it shall be deemed advisable by said board, tlie board may issue to 
such person further permits to be at libert}" under the provisions of 
section thirty-eight, and subject to revocation as therein provided. 

Rules and Eegidations. 

Rule 1. Prisoners who may be held in custody for a term not 
exceeding one year shall be entitled to release on parole at the ex- 
piration of three months from the date of their commitment, on the 
recommendation of the Superintendent of the State Farm. If re- 

1 As amended by Acts of 1904, chapter 216. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 39 

turned for violation of the conditions of the release, they shall 
remain at the State Farm four months after such return; and if 
returned a second time, they shall remain until the expiration of the 
term of the maximum sentence, except as provided hy Kule 3. 

Rule 2. Prisoners who may be held in custody for a term not 
exceeding two years shall be entitled to release on parole at the 
expiration of nine months from the date of their commitment, on the 
recommendation of the Superintendent of the State Farm. If 
returned for violation of the conditions of the release, they shall 
remain at the State Farm until the expiration of the term of the 
maximum sentence, except as provided by Eule 3. 

Rule 3. Prisoners returned to the State Farm to serve until the 
expiration of the term of the maximum sentence shall be entitled 
to such deduction of time for good conduct, not exceeding thirty 
days, as the Superintendent of the State Farm may determine ; but 
in case of arrest after such release, the State Board shall not 
revoke the permit to be at liberty, but shall let the case take its 
course in the courts. 

Rule 4. AYhen a prisoner during the term of his parole is 
returned on a new sentence for a similar offence, he shall be held on 
that new sentence, but for no less a period than if he had been 
returned for violation of the conditions of his parole. 

The Superintendent of the State Farm shall report to the State 
Board of Charity one week before the expiration of each month, 
and as much oftener as he may deem necessary, the names of all 
prisoners entitled to release under the foregoing rules. 

The release on parole provided for in these rules shall be upon 
condition that the holder of the permit to be at liberty does not 
thereafter return to his former habits of dissipation or vagrancy, and 
upon such other conditions as the State Board of Charity may 
impose; and whenever it shall appear to the Board that the condi- 
tions have been violated by the holder of the permit at any time 
during the maximum term for which he might have been held in 
custody; it may revoke the permit and issue a warrant for the 
return of the prisoner to the State Farm. 

The new concrete stand-pipe, with a capacity of 350,000 gal- 
lons, — four times that of the old one, — has boon completed 
and utilized. 

A new prison building of three stories and hasoniont, to con- 
tain twenty-seven small wards, each with accommodations for 
15 men, built entirely of reinforced concrete, is rapidly ap- 
proaching completion.

STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



For the purpose of entering on the ensilage method of feeding 
stock, three large silos of reinforced concrete have been built, and 
are now in use. 

The Trustees ask for no special appropriations. The Board 
approves their estimate for the current year, of $320,000, viz., 
salaries, wages, and labor, $92,000 ; other expenses, $228,000.

Forty-six were employed when arrested, 99 were attending 
school, and 87 were idle. One hundred and thirty-one had been 
arrested before and 52 had been committed to other institutions. 
In the case of 61, other members of the family had been arrested. 
All but 14 had one or both parents living. Eighty-five had in- 
temperate fathers, 6 had intemperate mothers, and 13 had both 
parents intemperate. One hundred and ninety-eight were born 
in the United States, 30 were foreign born, and the birth places 
of 4 were unknown. The average time spent in the institution 
was 19.2 months. Of the commitments, 81 were from Middle- 
sex County, 34 from Suffolk County, 34 from Essex County, 
15 from Bristol County, 17 from Worcester County, 19 from 
Hampden County, 7 from Norfolk County, 11 from Plymouth 
County, 3 from Barnstable County, 6 from Berkshire County, 
2 from Franklin County, and 3 from Hampshire County. 

At the close of the school year, November 30, 1909, there were 
398 boys in the School, as against 419, December 1, 1908. The 
average number for the year was 408. The number of commit- 
ments was 232, which is the largest number for any year save 
one in the School's history. The total nundoer of boys for the 
year is 868. 

The crowded condition referred to in last year's Report has 
continued, although the acuteness of the situation has been re- 
lieved by more favorable conditions in placing out. There is at 
present under construction a double cottage, which will l)e ready 
for occupancy in the spring. This will take care of 60 boys, 
and, unless commitments continue to increase, will relieve the 
overcrowding appreciably. 

The cottage or family system, which has existed at the 
School for twenty-five years, is now very generally accej^ted 
as the most effective method of administration of correctional 
schools, although some recentlv established schools have carried 



42 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

the practice a little farther, by reducing the size of the cottage- 
family to fifteen. The cottages at the Lyman School were- 
originally planned for not more than thirty boys, but have been 
forced to care for a larger number. This overcrowding operates, 
against obtaining the best results from the cottage system^ 
which should be most successful when the family unit is small, 
and approaches the normal as it exists in the community. 

The Lyman School, despite the drawbacks of insufficient acre- 
age and crowded cottages, continues to do good work in making 
good men out of unfortunate boys. 

The younger boys are sent to a cottage in the to^\Ti of Berlin, 
some seven miles distant from the School proper. There, sepa- 
rated from the more experienced boys, they live as nearly as 
possible the normal life of the boy reared in the country ; there 
are the teachers who instruct them in the branches for which 
they are qualified; there are the daily chores which train them 
to habits of industry and usefulness ; and there abundant time 
is given for wholesome exercise and play. But this cottage, too, 
is always overcrowded to a degree that does not admit of the 
best results. The incoming boy forces the placing out of the 
Berlin bov before he has had enou2:h svstematic training' to fit 
him successfully for his new home. The result is that too often 
he is found unsatisfactory and is returned. 

The Trustees have asked for an appropriation of $10,000, 
with which to purchase a farm nearer the main school, and to 
establish another home for these younger boys. With this addi- 
tion it will be possible to keep these boys under careful training 
long enough to give reasonable assurance of their going straight 
when placed out. 

When boys are placed out, either at their own homes or with 
others, they are regularly visited by experienced visitors, who 
advise them and observe their conduct and environment, and 
often take counsel with persons who may be great factors in the 
boy's life if interest can be aroused. These visits are made three 
or four or more times annually, and continue until the boy 
reaches his majority. The importance of this after-care cannot 
be overestimated. It provides the boy frequently with his only 
disinterested friend, and he knows where to turn in times of 
sickness, misfortune, or temptation. It must be remembered 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 43 

that these boys are not all vicious ; many arc weak and most are 
victims of bad home conditions. It is no small factor in their 
struggle to make a place in the world against such handicaps, 
that they have the advice and encouragement of kind, wise, and 
broadly experienced visitors. 

The Board approves the estimate of the Trustees for appro- 
priations for the current year of $110,000, viz., salaries, wages, 
and labor, $40,000; other expenses, $09,400. 

The Board also approves the following special estimates : for 
enlargement of plant for heat, light, and power, $12,800 ; neigh- 
boring farm, to provide for younger boys, $10,000 ; fire protec- 
tion, $2,500.

fourteen years, 12 thirteen years, 7 twelve years, 1 eleven years, 
2 ten years, and 1 nine years. Forty-two were committed from

While the commitments for 1908-09 decreased 10 from those 
of the preceding year, the average number at the School has been 
260; and this has taxed the School capacity, although there has 
been an additional cottage available during the year. 

The girls are taught to cook and mend, to cut out and make 
garments, to be economical, careful, and neat housekeepers, and 
to know how to make much out of commonplace things. They 
learn to braid mats out of their old discarded dresses, to re-seat 
chairs with braided denim, and to fashion little articles for use 
or ornament in the home. 

In addition to the 267 girls in School ]^ovember 30, 1909, 
there were 350 girls in the care of the probation department. 
These are the girls who have been in the School long enough to 
have earned the opportunity to go out into the world and attempt 
to make their way under normal conditions of living. For many 
of these such an experience would involve immediate failure 
were they not upheld and guided by the wisdom, tact and experi- 
ence of the staff of probation visitors. Some of them, in spite 
of this close oversight, fail again and again, and are returned to 
the School for further training. A considerable percentage are 
so far below normal in mentality that they are removed to the 
School for the Feeble-minded, where they are saved from the 
temptations to which they would easily fall victims, and cease 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 45 

to be a menace to the community. That the School, in conjunc- 
tion with the after-care of the probation department, is doing 
good work, is indicated by the results obtained during the year, 
when, out of 95 girls attaining the age of 21, 59 were leading 
respectable, self-supporting lives. 

While results like this are highly gratifying, the Trustees are 
not content until every possible attempt to improve conditions is 
exhausted. Heretofore there has been no central building, 
where class work and instructions in sloyd, dressmaking, repair- 
ing, sewing or rug making could be given. The girls have been 
classified in cottages according to their history; the more inno- 
cent girls in one cottage, and the others graded according to their 
greater knowledge of evil. The introduction of the industrial 
classes in the cottages has compelled a certain laxness in the mat- 
ter of intermingling of the various grades of girls as they went 
from one class room to another, and has tended to minimize the 
benefits of classification according to morals. The Trustees 
have asked for an appropriation this year for a central building, 
to contain the needed class rooms, as well as a gymnasium and 
assembly room, where meetings, entertainments, and such social 
affairs as are legitimate necessities for young girls may be held 
under proper supervision. 

The problem of the proper handling of cases of venereal 
diseases is of growing importance, and the time seems to have 
arrived when special hospital provision should be made for them. 
This element is a large one in the School, and will be a constant 
menace to the uninfected girls unless provision is made for more 
thorough segregation in the present hospital, or, better still, for 
the building of a hospital exclusively for this class. 

The Board approves the estimate of the Trustees for appro- 
priations for the current year of $65,580, viz., salaries, wages, 
and labor, $27,830 ; other expenses, $37,750. 

The Board also approves the following special estimates: 
schoolhouse, $36,000 ; sewer beds, $8,000.

The total running expenses for the year were $186,709.27, 
viz., salaries, wages, and labor, $59,476.53; other expenses,

Valuation: land and buildings, $498,334; personal estate, 
$40,945.54; total, $539,279.54. 

Applicants for admission to the institution are examined as 
follows: at the Sanatorium, on any day but Sunday; at the 
Boston office, in the out-patient department of the Massachusetts 
General Hospital, on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 1.30 to 
3.30 P.M. ; at Worcester City Hospital, by Dr. Albert C. Getchell, 
on Mondays and Thursdays from 9 to 10 a.m. ; at Worcester 
Hahnemann Hospital, by Dr. J. P. Rand, on Thursdays from 
4 to 5 P.M. ; at the following places on Wednesday and Saturdays 
at 2 P.M. : Springfield, by Dr. Everett A. Bates, 57 Chestnut 
Street; Pittsfield, by Dr. John F. A. Adams, 114 Wendell 
Street, and Dr. R. A. Woodruff, 73 IS^orth Street; Fall River, by

Street. 

During the year 2,015 new applicants were examined for 
admission; of these, 584 were accepted, 591 not accepted, and 
840 deferred. There were 505 re-examinations of applicants 
formerly deferred or not accepted. Of these, 140 were accepted, 
157 not accepted, and 208 again deferred. The whole number 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 47 

of examinations was 2,520, of which 1,G78 were examined at the 
Boston office; at Worcester City Hospital, 184 examinations 
were made; at Fall River, 132 ; at Pittsfield, 59 ; at Lowell, 89 ; 
at Sprini>field, 71; at Northampton, 42; at Greenfield, 15; and 
at Worcester Hahnemann Hospital, 3. The admissions from 
Suffolk and Middlesex counties were 47.6% of the whole. Suf- 
folk County furnished 31.9%; Middlesex, 15.7%; Essex, 
10.9%; Worcester, 15.7%; Bristol, 7.9%; Plymouth, 4.7%; 
Norfolk, 2.4% ; Berkshire, 3.5% ; and Hampden, 3.5%. Nearly 
71% were born in the L^nited States. Of the foreign born, 
26+% were born in the Canadian Provinces, 24% in Ireland, 
20+% in Russia, 7% in F]ngland, and 7+% in Sweden. Dur- 
ing the year 443 applicants were not naturalized citizens, and 
of this number 197 were cases suitable for admission, but were 
deferred until there should fail to be a sufficient number of 
citizens to fill the beds, in accordance with the provisions of 
chapter 222 of the x\cts of 1907. Only 8 of this number were 
finally admitted ; many of them had been residents of Massa- 
chusetts for several years. 

The average age of all patients admitted was 26 years 9 
months. The age was under 20 in 18+%, and between 20 and 
30 in 42+%. There were 26 girls and 15 boys between the 
ages of 14 and 16. There is special need of a sanatorium school 
for children under the age of 17. In 88% of the cases ad- 
mitted the occupation of the patients was an indoor one. 

Of the cases, 203, or 31.13%, under treatment during the 
year were classified as incipient, 341, or 52.3%, as moderately 
advanced, and 108, or 16.56%, as far advanced. This shows a 
decrease of about 5% in the number of incipient cases under 
treatment. 

Of the incipient cases under treatment during the year, 
61.57% were discharged as apparently cured, 25.61% as ar- 
rested, 10.83% as improved, and 1.97% as not improved. 

The average duration of residence of the incipient cases dis- 
charged as apparently cured or arrested was 5 months and 1 
day. 

There were 341 classified as moderately advanced, of whom 
12.61% were apparently cured, 43.11% arrested, 32.84% im- 
proved, and 11.43% not improved. 

The far-advanced cases numbered 108, an incrc^ase of 31 over 



48 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

last year. Xone of these were discharged as apparently cured, 
but there was an arrest of the disease in 14.80%, improvement 
in 40.74%, while 44.44% were not improved. 

Taking all classes of cases together, 25.77% were apparently 
cured, 32.97% were arrested, 27.30% were improved, and 
13.95% not improved. 

There were 11 deaths during the year. 

The weight records of 652 considered cases were as follows : 
The number that gained weight was 595, — men, 313 ; women, 
282. The average gain of the men was 15.1 pounds; average 
gain of the women, 14 pounds. The greatest gain of a man was 
55 pounds, and of a woman 35 pounds. There were 57 who lost 
weight; 25 men losing an average of 7.2 pounds, and 32 women 
losing an average of 3.1 pounds. The average gain in weight is 
the highest since 1902. 

The therapeutic use of tuberculin was resorted to in 23 cases. 
One of these was discharged as apparently cured, 8 as arrested, 
1 improved, 6 not improved, and 4 are still under treatment. 

All of the patients treated during the year were paid for 
either by themselves or by their friends or by the town of settle- 
ment at the required rate of $4 per week, with the exception of 
13 patients, w^ho, having paid the required amount for a con- 
siderable period, were no longer able to do so, and 40 who were 
working for their care and treatment. 

Section 1 of chapter 222 of the Acts of 1907 provides that " in 
the admission of persons to the Massachusetts State Sanatorium 
preference shall be given to those applicants who are citizens of 
the Commonwealth," and the Attorney-General has given the 
opinion that the word '' citizens '' refers only to such persons as 
have been naturalized. Of 197 of this class of persons who were 
otherwise qualified for admission, but 8 were ultimately ad- 
mitted. This has been a special hardship in the case of unmar- 
ried women, who, although residents of the State for many years, 
and citizens for all practical purposes, have never been nat- 
uralized. The Board is of the opinion that such an interpreta- 
tion of the law was not within the intention of the original 
petitioners, and either a repeal of the law^ or some modification 
of it would appear advisable. 

The barn, for which an appropriation of $10,000 was made, 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. ^ 49 

has been com2)lcied, and is now occupied. It is satisfactory in 
every detail. They are now milking 32 cows, which give an 
average daily supply of 400 quarts. This, however, is only 50% 
of their needs, and the rest is obtained from the neighboring 
farmers, at a cost of 41/2 cents a quart. 

The hennery, which formerly accommodated 700 hens, has 
been increased to a capacity of 1,200. The average monthly 
supply is 760 dozen eggs. Besides this, however, the institution 
purchases 2,000 dozen a month. The class of eggs used is of the 
highest grade. 

The nurses' home, for which there is an appropriation of 
$15,000, is about ready for occupancy. It measures 80 by 40 
feet, has two stories with hip roof, and, in conformity with the 
other buildings, the outside is of stucco. It will contain 21 
single rooms and a dormitory for four, besides toilets and 
lavatories, and will afford accommodation for 25 nurses. 

In consequence of complaints from the local authorities, the 
State Board of Health ordered an enlargement of the filter beds, 
which is now being done. That Board also ordered a re-laying of 
sewer pipes to these filter beds, but an appropriation will be 
necessary to carry this into effect. 

A training school has been established during the year, which 
will fit the so-called '^ attendants " to become trained nurses. 

In accordance with the provisions of chapter 474 of the Acts of 
1907, upon the completion of the three new State sanatoriums 
at Xorth Reading, Lakeville, and Westfield, the representatives 
of the State Board of Charity and the State Board of Health will 
cease to be members of the Commission on Hospitals for Con- 
simiptives, and the remaining members of the Commission will 
assume the charge not only of these three Sanatoriums, but also 
of the institution at Rutland. 

The Board approves the estimate of the Trustees for appro- 
priations for the current year of $184,000, viz., salaries, wages 
and labor, $52,593.76; other expenses, $131,406.24. 

The Board also approves the following special estimates: fire 
protection, $400; dynamo and engine, $4,840; horse barn, in 
cement, $8,500; iron sewer pipe, $1,975.

The total running expenses for the year were $36,385.96, 
viz., salaries, wages and labor, $16,217.75 ; other expenses, 
$20,168.21. The average net weekly cost per capita was $5.93. 
Valuation: land and buildings, $170,906.90; personal estate, 
$30,383.02; total, $201,289.92. 

The maximnra number during the year was 140, the mini- 
mum 86 and the daily average 117.59. The average age was 
eight years. Thirteen of the cases discharged were suitable for 
care at home, and able to attend public schools ; ten were either 
bed-ridden, or mentally deficient, or chronic cases whose con- 
dition could not be improved by hospital treatment, and so were 
returned to parents for home care ; eight were removed for such 
causes as desire of parents, homesickness, bad influence on other 
children, etc. One of the two children who died was born with- 
out legs or arms ; the other was a chronic case of tuberculosis 
of the pelvis. 

Xearly all of the children received by the School are either 
tubercular or anemic, having been shut in from the outer 
world in many cases since birth. Many of them have been 
either bed patients, or have spent their lives in their chambers, 
deprived of the out-door activities of normal children, and unable 
to enjoy the air and sunlight necessary to growth and healthy 
development. The improvement in these little ones often begins 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 51 

during the first few weeks of their stay in the School ; and ruddy, 
well-rounded cheeks replace the pinched, white faces that were 
painfully evident at the time of admission. Great care is exer- 
cised in giving them a plentiful diet of wholesome food, and 
much of their time is spent in. the open air under all kinds of 
weather conditions. The dormitories are almost out-door sleep- 
ing quarters, so generous and constant is the supply of fresh 
air under the admirable system of ventilation adopted by the 
administration. After a brief period the children really learn to 
play like other children, and are found about the grounds indulg- 
ing for the first time in childish sports. 

Many of these children have never been able to attend public 
schools, and even those who ha\'e had some instruction are far 
below the normal in this respect. As the children are of vary- 
ing ages and capacities, it is impossible to grade them in school 
work like public school pupils ; but each one is given daily in- 
struction in kindergarten, primary, and grammar school sub- 
jects, according to his needs, and his physical requirements. 
Many of them cannot stand the restraint and discipline of the 
class room except for brief intervals daily; others can safely 
be detained for longer periods. The average attendance at school 
for the majority of the children has been one and one-half hours 
daily. The development of the mental faculties of these children 
is a matter requiring special attention of the instructors in each 
individual case, just as their physical ailments require indi- 
vidual treatment; and this means great thought and care and 
ceaseless energy on the part of the Superintendent and all the 
staff. Instruction in sloyd is also a part of the School's curric- 
ulum, and is eagerly taken up by the boys, some of whom have 
really creditable examples of useful articles made by them in 
this class. The girls have responded finely to the efforts of the 
sewing teacher. Only half a dozen of the thirty-two girls knew 
how to sew when admitted. They have learned to mend and 
darn skilfully, and many of the garments and much of the table 
linen used in the School is the product of their efforts. 

Of vastly more importance than the saving effected to the 
School by the production of us(>ful articles is the revc^lation to 
the children that they are not useless factors in the world, 
but that their services are valuable and that there is opportunity 



52 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

for them ahead. Without such an establishment as the Hospi- 
tal School, these children, made even more helpless by the natural 
though short-sighted indulgence of their parents, would gravi- 
tate inevitably towards a condition of complete dependence. 
The Trustees are trying to work out carefully some system of 
manual training adapted to the varying needs of the pupils, 
and leading to specialized trades and industries, in which there 
may be an assurance of self-support. This policy does not con- 
template the encouragement of production of useless articles 
that find a market through considerations of sympathy ; it seeks 
to discover, by patient investigation, a place where each child, 
according to his capacity and limitations, may do some serious 
work and secure his own happiness and self-respect, and the 
intelligent cooperation of the community. 

The industrial building, with a large dormitory on the second 
floor containing beds for fifty pupils, and a new cottage to care 
for sixteen children, will be finished before Spring. The in- 
firmary also, which will be ready about the same time, will add 
greatly to the efficiency of the School. 

The Board approves the estimate of the Trustees for appro- 
priations for the current year, of $55,000, viz., salaries, wages, 
and labor, $21,000; other expenses, $34,000.

This School, established under chapter 639 of the Acts of 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 53 

1908, was formally opened by proclamation of the Governor, 
July 31, 11)09. The Trustees, appointed on June 30, 1908, 
organized on July 30, 1908, and immediately began to search 
for a suitable site for the School. This work involved not only 
the consideration of a large number of locations offered, but also 
an investigation of similar institutions and a study of court com- 
mitments, in order to estimate the probable ultimate require- 
ments of area. 

On September 1, 1908, the Trustees concluded the purchase 
of a tract of nearly 900 acres, lying in the towns of Shirley 
and Lancaster, and formerly occupied by the community known 
as Shakers. For the purpose of the School the situation is 
almost ideal, with an altitude varying from 300 to nearly 400 
feet, and sloping down to the Nashua River, which forms its 
eastern boundary line. There are good farming and ample 
pasture lands, orchards, and several hundred acres in wood, all 
of which can be utilized for the supplying of products and for 
the training of boys in the various occupations in connection 
with them. There were a number of buildings on the land, 
which had served the Shakers as community buildings, meeting 
house, barns, etc. ; many of them were of unusually good con- 
struction, and capable of adaptation to the uses of the School. 

The Trustees actually took possession of the property on Jan- 
uary 1, 1909, and the work of remodeling the buildings for the 
purposes of the School was begun in the spring and prosecuted 
during the summer. Two brick buildings and one wooden build- 
ing were converted into dormitories. Another building was 
reconstructed for the purpose of a residence for the Superin- 
tendent and some of the officers, and for administration offices. 
Other buildings were converted into a small hospital, a building 
for laundry, bakery, and kitchen, and a central heating plant. 
The old chapel was remodeled and modernized, and is used for 
school purposes as well as for divine worship. Other necessary 
reconstruction of barns and buildings has resulted in giving 
to the School as good a plant as was possible, taking into con- 
sideration the desire of the Trustees to begin the work of the 
School without needless delay. 

Of the 97 boys received since the opening, 5 have been found 
to be uncontrollable, and their defiance of the rules so subver-

sive of discipline as to compel their transfer to the Concord 
Reformatory. 

Up to the present time, with the limit as to number which the 
Trustees are authorized to maintain by chapter 472 of the Acts 
of 1909, there has not been much difficulty in keeping the boys 
employed. Farming, dairying, carpentering, painting, fence 
building, clearing of land, etc., have furnished occupation. In 
addition, there is the housework which each boy must perform, 
and the work in connection with the kitchen and bakery, the 
engine room and laundry, and miscellaneous employment inci- 
dent to the daily necessities of a family of about 125, including 
officers. There is also in operation a wood-working shop, a 
blacksmith shop and a carriage-painting shop; later, there will 
be added cobbling and tailoring. When the restriction as to 
numbers is removed, it is probable that the population of the 
School will increase w^ith great rapidity, and the Trustees are 
considering comprehensive plans for the large number of boys 
which experience has proved is inevitable. They purpose to ask 
the Legislature this year for an appropriation to build two 
more cottages with accommodations for 60 boys. They are 
agreed also that it is essential to the welfare of the boys and 
necessary to the conduct of the School to ask for an appropriation 
for a central building, to contain an assembly hall, drill shed, 
gymnasium and swimming pool. This building is planned to 
meet the permanent needs of the School, w4th accommodations 
for 400 boys. 

The greater number of the boys have received more or less 
education in public and private schools, but there are some who 
do not meet the legal requirements in this matter, and these 
are given daily instruction in the School. 

Idleness is so often the cause of law-breaking that it is of 
the first importance that these boys acquire the habit of indus- 
try; and, while the manner of inculcating this habit is of less 
importance than its acquisition, it is desirable that when the 
boys go out from the School they should have mastered some 
definite trade or occupation. As the School grows in numbers, 
and classification according to inclination and ability becomes 
increasingly feasible, a comprehensive system of shops for teach- 
ino- trades will be instituted.

The Board approves the estimate of the Trustees for appro- 
priations for the current year of $57,250, viz., salaries, wages, 
and labor, $20,950; other expenses, $36,300.

Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 73 

Financial Supervision of State Institutions. 

The Examining Visitor has made monthly, and in some in- 
stances weekly, investigations of the State institutions under the 
supervision of the Board, for the purpose of acquainting himself 
with their financial methods, and studying and reporting on 
their yearly and monthly expenditures in detail, and of making 
suggestions for the purpose of effecting efficiency and economy 
in the administration of their affairs. From this supervision 
certain definite results have been secured, which may be 
briefly stated as follows : — 

Efficiency of supervision has been increased by obtaining 
better comparisons of the affairs of the institutions through the 
reduction of articles of food, coal, oil, tobacco, live stock, hay, 
grain and feed, alcohol, gasolene, and naphtha, to units of 
quality, quantity, and price; by establishing a system of com- 
parative statistics, as per statement herewith appended; and 
by establishing better standards. The field of investigation has 
been extended to other institutions than those under the Board's 
supervision, both in this and in other States, and to large 
corporations. 

Efficiency and economy of administration has been in- 
creased : — 

1. By the adoption, by most of the institutions, of a system 
of purchasing, receiving, and issuing of all goods, and the keep- 
ing of a proper stock account. 

2. By the buying of all articles like coal and flour from the 
lowest responsible competitive bidder. Some institutions have 
made assays and working tests, to insure the delivery of the 
same quality as purchased. A copy of a contract for coal, pre- 
pared by an expert, has been furnished each institution. 

3. By the buying, on the part of several institutions, of all 
articles on bids from the lowest bidder. 

4. By the buying, to a greater extent, of food articles of a 
standard quality. All other commodities purchased are of a 
standard quality. 

5. By buying on a cash basis. With the assistance of the 
State Auditor, all institutions are now taking advantage of 
discoimts for cash. 



74 



STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



6. By taking advantage of market conditions in the buying 
of staple articles like coal, flour, sugar, etc. 

7. By eliminating, as much as possible, the purchasing of 
articles at retail prices in small quantities. 

8. By not purchasing, more than is necessary, articles put 
up in cartons, tins, etc. 

9. By having all articles like flour and cereals properly 
packed. 

10. By the better handling and storage of coal. There is 
still an opportunity for much saving in labor and material. 

11. By careful inspection of water and steam pipes, and mak- 
ing repairs when needed. 

12. By having all repairs and improvements made when 
necessary, thereby maintaining the up-keep of the institutions, 
and preventing loss or damage. 

These results have been secured by means of price bulletins 
of food sent monthly to each institution, showing the maximum, 
minimum, and average price paid for every article of food pur- 
chased, as shown in blank below ; by suggestions made, generally 
at the time of visit ; and by the moral effect of supervision thus 
conducted.

Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 83 

The Couxty Truaxt Schools. 

The law provides that the County Truant Schools shall be 

visited by the State Board of Education and the State Board of 

Charity, and that each of these Boards shall report on them 

annually to the General Court. The Schools are as follows : — 

Essex County Training School, Lawrence. 
Hampden County Training School, Springfield. 
Middlesex County Training School, Xorth Chelmsford. 
Xorfolk, Bristol and PljTnouth Union Training School, Wal- 

pole. 
Suffolk County Training School (Boston Parental), Roxbury. 
Worcester County Training School, Oakdale. 

The total number committed to the Schools during the year 
ending Xovember 30, 1909, was 287, in addition to 71 re- 
turned from probation; 26 having been committed as '^absen- 
tees," 9 as " school offenders," 228 as " truants," 7 as " delin- 
quent children," and 17 as '^ habitual truants." The number in 
all the Schools Xovember 30, 1909, was 657. The average 
number during the year was 658. The average age of those 
committed was eleven years and nine months; the youngest 
being seven years, and the oldest fifteen years and three months. 
The average net weekly cost per capita was $3.18. 

Each of the Schools has been visited twice during the year, 
as provided by the by-laws of the State Board of Charity. 

The population in all the Schools, except the Suffolk County 
Training School, is steadily increasing. In the Suffolk County 
School there has been a decrease from 212 on ^N'ovember 30, 
1908, to 177 on Xovember 30, 1909. This falling off in num- 
bers is probably due to one or both of two factors, — better 
work on the part of truant and probation officers, and greater 
effort on the part of the public school administration of Boston 
to keep pupils interested in their studies by simplifying the 
curriculum and by establishing special small classes for back- 
ward and troublesome boys, where the effect of a greater share 
of the teacher's personality is shown in the awakened interest 
of the scholar. The Suffolk County Training School is the only

one making provision for girls, there being 10 in the School at 
the close of the year. 

A central school building is under construction at the Suffolk 
County School, which will be finished in the Spring. This 
will be a great improvement in the equipment, furnishing an 
assembly hall and gymnasium, in addition to the class rooms. 
The old buildings in which the classes have been held will be 
devoted to elementary industrial training. 

A new cottage for 50 boys is almost completed at the Mid- 
dlesex County School, which will relieve the present congested 
condition. 

All the Schools are models of cleanliness and order, and, while 
there are practically as many differing policies in administra- 
tion as there are schools, the results on the whole are good.

59 had been removed from the almshouse and 8 had died before 
the time of visitation. Of the remainder, 48 were so defective 
in body or mind as to render their retention in the almshouse 
desirable, and 5 were removed after notification by the Board 
to the Overseers of the Poor that they were detained contrary to 
law. There were 19 who attended school, and 9 who did more 
or less work.

Dependent Minor Children provided for in Families and 

Asylums. 

Of the 809 children reported by the local authorities as fully 
supported outside of almshouses on January 1, 1909, 14 were 
unknown, 1 had died, and 128 had been removed before visits 
could be made. The remaining QGG — 375 boys and 291 girls 
— were supported by 69 cities and towns, as follows: Abington, 
7 ; Andover, 3 ; Ashburnham, 1 ; Athol, 3 ; Barnstable, 1 ; Becket, 
2; Boston, 404; Brockton, 1; Brookline, 2; Cambridge, 12;

Of the whole number, 94 were cared for and treated in public 
and private hospitals and asylums. There were 497 who at- 
tended school, and 205 who did more or less work. Of the whole 
number, 610 were in fairly good physical condition, and 644 in 
fairly good mental condition. The price of board varied from 
less than $1 per week to $10. All these children appeared to be 
well cared for, except in a very few instances, to which the 
attention of the Overseers of the Poor was duly called. 

The Penalty incurked by Certain Cities and Towns for 
Failure to make their Pauper Returns during the 
Month of April^ 1909. 
Sections 39-42 of chapter 81 of the Revised Laws, as 

amended by chapter 115 of the Acts of 1905, are as follows : — 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 91 

Section 39. Overseers of the poor shall keep full and accurate 
records, in a form prescribed by the state board of charity, of the 
paupers fully supported, the persons relieved and partially sup- 
ported, and the travellers and vagrants lodged at the expense of 
their cities and towns and of the amount paid for such support and 
relief. 

Sectiox 40. They shall annually in April, for the year ending 
on the last day of March, return to the state board of charity the 
number of such persons supported and relieved, the cost thereof, and 
a record of those fully supported. 

Section 41. In the year nineteen hundred and five and in every 
tenth year thereafter the return of the overseers of the poor shall 
contain true and correct answers to such additional inquiries as the 
state board of charity may deem it advisable to make. 

Section 42. If the overseers of the poor of a city or town refuse 
or neglect to comply with the recjuirements of the three preceding 
sections, such city or town shall forfeit one dollar for each day's 
neglect, and the amount of such forfeiture shall be deducted from 
any amount to which said city or town may be entitled in reim- 
bursement for relief of state paupers as provided in sections fifteen 
and sixteen of chapter eighty-five; and if no such reimbursement 
shall be due to said city or town, the forfeiture shall be deducted 
from any money which ma}' be due to it from the Commonwealth. 

Under these laws the Board reported to the Treasurer of tlie 
Commonwealth the names of the cities and towns that failed to 
make their pauper returns during the month of April, 1909, 
together with the amount of penalty incurred in each instance, 
as follows : Amesbury, $2 ; Amherst, $10 ; Ashby, $2 ; Belmont, 
$3 ; Carlisle, $2 ; Charlton, $3 ; Conway, $14 ; Cummington, $2 ;

Administration. 

In addition to the duties of supervision and publicity above 
given, the Board is charged with certain duties entirely ad- 
ministrative. These are chiefly grouped under two heads, viz., 
State adult poor and State minor wards. 

The administrative duties with reference to the State adult 
poor comprise the discharge of sane inmates of the State In- 
firmary and the State Farm, the execution of laws relative to 
the release on parole of prisoners at the State Farm,^ the in- 
vestigation of questions of settlement of poor supported, relieved, 
and buried by cities and tov^ns, and of sane inmates of State 
institutions, the directing of aid of unsettled poor by cities and 
towns, the transfer of sane paupers from one institution to 
another, the sending of paupers to the places within and outside 
of the State where they belong, the carrying out of the pro- 
visions of the contract with the United States regarding alien 
immigrants falling into distress and becoming a public charge, 
and the management of the leper hospital at Penikese Island. 

The administrative duties with regard to State minor wards 
comprise the maintenance and care of delinquent, neglected, and 
dependent children coming into the custody of the Board 
through court commitment and otherwise, and the execution of 
the laws concerning abandoned infants and infant boarding- 
houses. 

The State Out-Door Poor. 
The statutes provide that before any bills for the support or 
relief of the unsettled poor by cities and towns can be con- 
sidered by the State, which pays for their care, notices of the 
cases shall be sent to the Board ; and, in accordance with these 
laws, 12,875 such notices were received during the official year, 
from 233 cities and towns, on account of 26,140 persons; a 
net decrease of 1,217, or about 8% per cent., over the previous 
year. Of these notices, 9,293, concerning 10,645 individuals, 
were on account of persons too sick to be removed (including 
2,435 notices, concerning 2,655 individuals, on account of per- 
sons sick with dangerous diseases) ; 855 notices, concerning 

1 This is treated under the subject " State Farm." See p. 37. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 93 

3,928 persons, were for wife-settlement cases; and 2,727 notices, 
concerning 11,567 persons, were for temporary aid and trans- 
portation. Of the total number of notices above stated, 1,683, 
concerning 4,854 individuals, were in cases on account of which 
a previous notice had been received during the year. 

Cases of Sich State Poor. 

The number of sick State poor notices received was 9,293. 
These 9,293 notices were sent by 197 cities and towns, concern- 
ing 10,645 persons, of whom 9,354 w^ere represented as being 
too ill to be removed. This number shows a net increase of the 
number of notices over the previous year of about 5% per cent., 
and, as compared with the official year 1906-07, an increase 
of about 11% per cent. The largest number of notices re- 
ceived in any one month was 923, in January; and the smallest, 
637, in August. Of these 9,293 notices, 4,961, or about 53% 
per cent, of the whole number, were from the city of Boston, 
viz. ; 4,812 from the Boston City Hospital, 100 from the Insti- 
tutions Department, 2 from the Board of Health, 45 from the 
Boston Lying-in Hospital, and 2 on account of persons aided 
at their homes. 

The number of visits made by the officers of the Board, in 
the investigation of these 9,293 notices, was 18,615. As a 
result of these investigations, the Overseers of the Poor were 
directed to discontinue aid in 1,803 cases, — in 1,790 on ac- 
count of the recovery of the patient sufficiently to permit of 
his removal, and in 13 for other reasons manifest to the Board. 
In 245 cases all aid was refused, — in 243 because at the time 
of the application the patient could have been removed without 
danger, and in 2 for other evident reasons. 

There were 6,519 cases investigated by the visitors; and in 
460 cases settlements were found, concerning 616 persons. 

By order of the Board, 5 persons were sent to the State In- 
firmary. 

Among those reported as sick there were 872 deaths. 



94 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Cases of Dangerous Diseases. 

Of the 9,293 notices previously stated as received relative to 
the sick State poor, 2,435 were on account of " smallpox or 
other diseases dangerous to the public health," and provided 
for 2,655 persons, of whom 2,465 were patients. These notices 
were from 93 cities and towns; 882 being for cases of diph- 
theria, 609 for scarlet fever, 7 for smallpox, 161 for measles, 
387 for tuberculosis, 10 for whooping-cough, 21 for cerebro- 
spinal meningitis, 351 for typhoid, 2 for mumps, 2 for ery- 
sipelas, 2 for chicken-pox, and 1 for rabies. In 194 cases 
settlements were found, concerning 219 persons. 

Since August 8, 1907, — the date on which the State Board of 
Health, by direction of the Legislature, prepared and published 
a list of diseases dangerous to the public health, which in- 
cluded tuberculosis, — persons sick with tubercular disease and 
dependent upon public aid have been cared for, not as formerly 
by the Overseers of the Poor, but as the law directs, by the 
local Board of Health. The law regards these sick persons not 
as paupers, but as persons for whom, on account of the char- 
acter of their illness, the public for its own safety must make 
efficient provision. The aid furnished by the public to cases of 
this kind is suitable and sufficient, and is given them either at 
their own homes, or in local hospitals, or in specially constructed 
" tubercular camps." 

Because of the greater attention given to tubercular disease, 
and the difficulty of persons infected with it finding employment, 
even if able to work, and also because of the fact that provision 
is made by the public for cases of this kind, the number of 
applications for aid from the Commonwealth for tubercular 
patients without legal settlement is rapidly increasing. Of 
these cases there were : — 

From August 8 to December 1, 1907 48 

During official year 1907-08 194 

During official year 1908-09 387 

An obvious suggestion is, that, since suitable care is being 
given to actual cases of tubercular sickness, at least equal atten- 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 95 

tion should be given to its prevention. For instance, — in 
almost every locality persons are living in houses and tene- 
ments that are either actually infected with tubercular disease, 
or so unfit for habitation that their occupants fall easy victims 
to it. Why spend thousands of dollars to cure, when hundreds 
or even less would prevent ? Xo new legislation is needed. The 
remedy is with the local boards of health, which have powers 
ample for any emergency. 

Cases of ^Yife-settlement, 
The number of notices received was 855, from 98 cities and 
towns, concerning 3,928 persons, of whom 399 were sick. These 
fiig-ures show a net decrease in the number of notices, as compared 
with the previous year, of about 25^ per cent. ; and as com- 
l^ared with the year 1906-07, an increase of about 25%o per 
cent. Of these 855 notices, 268, or about 31 per cent., were from 
the city of Boston. There were 201 new cases investigated by 
the agents of the Board, and 12 settlements were found. Of the 
3,928 persons previously mentioned, 3,073 were acknowledged 
as settled, and, as 12 settlements were found among the re- 
maining 855, the whole number aided by the State was 843, of 
whom 266 were sick. The number of visits made in these cases 
was 1,005. As a result of the visits, the local authorities were 
advised to discontinue aid in 11 cases. 

Cases of Temporary Aid. 
The number of notices received was 2,727, concerning 11,567 
persons, from 175 cities and towns. The largest number of 
notices received in any one month was 875, in January; and the 
smallest number was 108, in August. The whole number shows 
a net decrease, as compared with the preceding year, of about 
34 per cent., and as compared with the year 1906-07, an in- 
crease of about 34 per cent. Of these notices, 279, or about 
101/4 per cent., were received from the city of Boston. The num- 
ber of visits made under all these notices was 3,968. There 
were 995 cases investigated by the agents of the Board, and 
246 settlements were found, concerning 967 persons. As a re- 
sult of visitation, aid was discontinued in 192 cases, and in 



96 



STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



13 cases aid was refused. There were 78 persons removed to 
the State Infirmary; 5 persons refused to be so removed, and 
further aid was declined. 

During the year, bills for the transportation of 175 persons, 
under the temporary aid law, amounting to $1,143.83, were 
allowed. Of these 175 persons, 10 were sent to the Azores ; 16 
were sent to European countries, viz. : England, 8 ; Ireland, 6 ; 
Italy, 1 ; Sweden, 1 : 31 to Canada and other British Provinces ; 
118 to other States, viz., California, 5; Connecticut, 11; Illi- 
nois, 7 ; Maine, 14 ; Xew Hampshire, 7 ; ^ew Jersey, 5 ; Xew 
York, 51; Rhode Island, 8; Vermont, 5; Virginia, 5. 

Bills amounting to $40.98 were allowed for transportation of 
34 shipwrecked seamen from Chatham, Provincetown, and 
Truro, to Boston. 

Expenses of Support of Out-door Poor.

Pexikese Hospital. 
Fra>k H. Parker. Superintendent. 

This Hospital, for lepers only, is situated on Penikese Island, 
and is under the direct control of the State Board of Charity. 
There are, at present. 11 inmates, an increase over last year of 
50 per cent. There have been -1 admissions during the past 
year. On March 27. Solomon Goodman and Archibald Thomas 
were received; on April 2-i. Demetrius Phresa. a Greek, was 
admitted, but. having contracted the disease prior to coming to 
tins coimtry, and having fallen into distress within three years 
after landing, and so being a case for deportation by the United 
States government, he was sent to his home on October 15. Mrs. 
Mary Martin, of Xew Bedford, was the last patient admitted: 
she was taken to the Island December 17. 

Since tbe first case. Frank Pena. was called to tbe attention 
of this Board, in April, 1904. there have been 15 genuine cases 
of leprosy. Fourteen of them have been inmates of tbis hos- 
pital. The other, while under supervision at Fall River, eluded 
the officers, and is stipposed to have returned to her home in the 
West Indies. There has been one death, due partly to leprosy, 
but in a great measure the result of a complication of an equally 
loathsome disease. 

The general health of the patients is fairly good, although the 
ravages of the disease slowly but persistently manifest them- 
selves. Every specific or serum recommended from any authen- 
tic source is given a trial, but no remedy has yet been found 
which will do more than hold the disease in check, and that 
for a brief period only. 

With the progress of the disease, several of the patients are 
fast reaching that condition where they will be unable to care 
for themselves. They are already dependent upon the good 
offices of the women patients for many attentions, and soon 
special attendants for them will be necessary. 

^Frs. Thomas, the mother of the seventeen-year-old boy. Archi- 
bald Thomas, who requested that she might sjx^nd her life with 
her son in seclusion, is employed by the Board in the capacity of 
nurse and helper, at a salary of $200. She has rendered ex- 



100 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

cellent service, and her presence among these unfortunates will 
be productive of great good. 

During the summer, Fathers Bernard and Roberts, from the 
college at Fairhaven, visited the colony and held mass in the 
interests of the patients, most of whom are of the Catholic 
faith. 

The difficulty of enforcing discipline and carrying out any 
system of regularity in the living of the inmates of this insti- 
tution is a serious one. The inmates have a feeling that they are 
entitled to a freedom of action and to privileges which the in- 
mates of no other State institution enjoy, and this feeling has 
been encouraged by the publishing of indiscreet newspaper 
articles and the writing of letters to the patients by well-mean- 
ing but injudicious friends. It is incumbent on the manage- 
ment to pursue a course of tact and good-will, with a relative 
laxity of discipline, in unimportant matters, while holding the 
inmates to rigid obedience and regularity in essentials. 

Improvements, made almost entirely by the Superintendent, 
the boatman, and the farmer, are as follows : — 

A railway 240 feet long, with a cradle for the cat-boat; a 
new vegetable cellar; an addition to the administration build- 
ing, to be used as a dining-room for farm employees and extra 
workmen ; renovation of barn ; improvement on the sheep shed ; 
finishing of the bungalow, containing a carpenter shop, store- 
room, and three sleeping-rooms for male employees; erection 
of a flag-staff. The lack of an adequate water supply is still 
a source of anxiety. Arrangements, however, have been made 
for the driving of new wells, which it is believed will perma- 
nently remedy the defect. 

The live stock now consists of 2 horses, 4 cows, 1 bull, 1 
yearling heifer, 2 yearling calves, 90 sheep, 4 hogs, 10 pigs, 
300 hens. 

The Legislature of 1909 appropriated $12,000 for addition 
and extension of the present hospital cottages. As a result of 
several conferences with architect, builders, and contractors, it 
was evident that the amount was insufficient for the purposes 
desired. All building operations were, therefore, deferred, and 
the Board would suggest that the present Legislature grant an 
additional appropriation of $4,000. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 101 

Archibald Thomas, who was a student in the Upton High 
School when taken to the Island, and who is deeply interested in 
the science of physics and especially of electricity, manifests a 
desire to continue his studies, especially along the line of wire- 
less telegraphy. He has been encouraged in his desire, and 
materials to the amount of $50 have been furnished him, and 
an electric pole 40 feet high has been erected for his use. 
Philanthropic people have become interested in the matter, and 
he has received various donations of books and instruments. 
The Women's Club of New Bedford sent him, as a Christmas 
present, a work bench with a complete outfit. To establish tele- 
phone or telegraph lines by the old methods so that communi- 
cation may be had with the Board's offices at the State House, 
would entail an expense of several thousand dollars. It is 
now expected that, at the above very limited cost, a wireless 
connection will soon be in operation. 

The Harbor and Land Commission reports as follows : — 

By chapter 93, Eesolves of 1909, the Board was directed to make 
a survey of the entrance to Penikese Island, and to make a report 
with an estimate of cost of dredging a channel not less than 150 feet 
wide and 12 feet deep at mean low water from the wharf built by the 
Commonwealth to the channel between Cutt3^hunk and Penikese 
Islands. 

A survey was made covering an area about 1,500 by 2,500 feet 
on the southeasterly side of the island, and including the shoal water 
between the wharf and the deep-water channel referred to in the 
statute. 

The estimate for excavating a channel about 650 feet long from 
the outer end of the wharf southeasterly to deep water, 150 feet wide 
and 12 feet deep at mean low water, and for excavating a berth 
100 feet wide and 12 feet deep at mean low water on both sides of 
the wharf for a distance of about 175 feet from the outer end of the 
wharf, is as follows : — 

36,000 cubic yards of material excavated, at 40 cents . . . $14,400 
Supervision and incidental expenses 600 



Total 815.000 

It seems advisable that an appropriation be made for this 
purpose. 



102 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. . [P. D. 17. 

Childkex IX THE Care axd Custody of the Board. 

At the close of the last official year, Xovember 30, 1908, there 
were 3,779 children in the care and custody of the Board, viz., 
312 juvenile offenders, 2,066 neglected children and 1,401 de- 
pendent children. 

During the year ending Xovember 30, 1909, 668 children 
were received, viz., 66 juvenile offenders, 363 neglected children 
and 239 dependent children; and 410 were discharged, viz., 62 
juvenile offenders, 206 neglected children, and 142 dependent 
children; leaving, November 30, 1909, 4,037 children, viz., 
316 juvenile offenders, 2,223 neglected children and 1,498 de- 
pendent children. Of the 4,037 children, 1,274 were in families 
without board, 2,462 in families with board, and 301 in the 
State Infirmary and other institutions, not penal, for special 
care and treatment.-^ 

The children in families without payment for board are 
mainly those who are sufficiently useful in the performance of 
errands and chores, or, at a later age, of larger duties, to warrant 
their support without such payment. As these children reach 
the age of fourteen, when they must be taken from school, places 
are obtained for them. Farm work is generally found for the 
boys, and many of them remain in their places and become part 
of the community. Others find farm work irksome and distaste- 
ful, and different occupations are sought for these. It would 
be very helpful if requests for our boys to work in shops and 
trades were more plentiful. 

Because of their need of the protection of family life at this 
age, the girls are naturally placed at domestic service. They 
are more easily cared for in this respect than boys, but not all of 
them are content to do housework. Some of them take up 
other occupations, such as telephone service or work in mills 

1 In addition to these 4,037 children, the Board had under supervision and visitation November 
30, 1909, 398 inmates of the Lj-man School for Boys, 267 inmates of the State Industrial School 
for Girls, 556 boys and 305 girls in the custody of the Trustees of the Lyman and Industrial Schools, 
outside of the Schools, 177 children in the State Infirmary, who were either young infants with 
their mothers or else under hospital treatment, 74 inmates of the Massachusetts State Sanatorium, 
20 inmates of the Xorth Reading State Sanatorium, 140 inmates of the Massachusetts Hospital 
School, 86 inmates of the Industrial School for Boys, 657 inmates of the County Truant Schools, 
and about 1,000 children supported at the expense of the cities and towns; making, as nearly 
as can be ascertained, a total of 7,717 children in the care and custody and under the super- 
vision of the Board. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 103 

and shops ; but the range of available employments is very 
narrow. 

Too often the aid of the Board is sought in an effort to secure 
low-priced helpers, either in the home or on the farm. While 
the services of the State children, particularly of the girls, are 
furnished on very reasonable terms, it is to be clearly understood 
that, in selecting places for them, the chief end in view is their 
systematic training and wholesome environment. They are 
instantly removed from places where, to the knowledge of 
the Board, they are overworked or otherwise ill-treated ; and the 
cooperation of the public in detecting and reporting any such 
cases is always welcome. 

Infants. 

The whole number of infants, or children under three years 
of age, in charge of the Board at the beginning of the official 
year, December 1, 1908, was 508 ; the number received during 
the year was 285 ; making the whole number supported during 
the year 793. There remained at the close of the year, Xovem- 
ber 30, 1909, 468. 

Of the 793 infants supported, 45 were legally adopted; 164 
were transferred to the sub-division for older children, having 
reached the age of three years ; 38 were discharged to parents or 
relatives ; 3 were discharged to the Home for Destitute Catholic 
Children and 1 to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul; 5 were 
discharged to place of settlement ; and 69 died. Of the remain- 
ing 468 infants, 11 were in homes without expense to the State. 

Of the 285 infants received, 65 were committed by the Over- 
seers of the Poor and 8 by the Superintendent of the State 
Infirmary, under the provisions of section 20 of chapter 83 of the 
Revised Laws, for the commitment of unsettled, indigent or 
neglected children to the custody of the State Board of Charity. 
Of these, 17 were foundlings and the others were committed as 
unsettled, indigent infants. These infants, as well as all other 
children received at the office in the State House, are carefully 
examined by one of the medical officers of the Board, their 
physical condition noted, and the result placed on file as a per- 
manent record. The physical condition of most of the infants 
when received is far below that of normal infants of the same 



104 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

age. The foundlings, however, are as a rule the most promis- 
ing for the reason that thev are usually younger, and show less 
the effects of bad treatment. All children who are found upon 
examination to have tuberculosis or syphilis are sent at once to 
the State Infirmary, instead of being placed in private homes, 
because of danger of contagion to the caretaker and her family. 

Of the number received, 105 were committed by the courts, 
under section 37 of chapter 83 of the Revised Laws, as amended 
by chapter 334 of the Acts of 1903, providing for the commit- 
ment of children under sixteen years of age, growing up without 
education or without salutary control, by reason of orphanage 
or by the direct crime of drunkenness or other vice of their 
parents, or in circumstances exposing them to lead idle and 
dissolute lives, or dependent upon public charity. Most of the 
infants committed under this law are filthy, vermin-infested, and 
suffering from neglect and insufficient nourishment when re- 
ceived, and many are victims of acute or chronic diseases. 
Those suffering from acute diseases of the eyes or ears are sent 
at once for treatment to the Massachusetts Eye and Ear In- 
firmary; and those having physical deformities are usually sent 
to the Children's Hospital. 

One infant was taken under section 26 of chapter 83 of the 
Revised Laws, which provides for the removal, by an officer of 
the Board, of children under the age of seven years not under 
the personal care of parents or guardians, and not receiving 
proper care. While only one infant was removed under this 
law during the year, it seems evident that any relaxation in the 
system of constant and rigid inspection of homes where private 
infants are boarded would soon result in the revival of the 
former practice of baby-farming, and increase the number re- 
ceived by the State Board. 

One infant was taken under section 13 of chapter 83 of the 
Revised Laws, providing for the surrender of illegitimate chil- 
dren under two years of age by their mothers for the purpose of 
adoption. 

There were 105 infants received under the provisions of sec- 
tion 36 of chapter 83 of the Revised Laws, authorizing the Board 
to provide for the maintenance of dependent children under the 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 105 

age of sixteen years, on the application of parents, guardians, 
friends, or Overseers of the Poor. 

The number of applicants for infants to adopt is in excess of 
the number of infants eligible for adoption. Xearly all of those 
received under section 36 cannot be adopted, and those who 
are committed by the courts are ineligible until after they have 
been in the custody of the Board two years, and are not claimed 
by parents, relatives or guardians. Those received under sec- 
tions 20 and 26, except foundlings, must be supported two years 
before a legal adoption can be completed. This leaves only 
foundlings, and those taken under section 13, who can be 
adopted immediately after being received into the custody of the 
Board. The whole number of applications received during the 
year for infants for adoption was 99 ; of these, 16 were with- 
drawn, 57 were investigated, including -1 that were later with- 
drawn, and 30 had investigation pending at the end of the 
year. Of the number investigated, -IT were approved and 10 
not approved. In 39 cases, the applicants were supplied with 
children, 6 of whom were returned. The number of applica- 
tions received during the year for infants to board was 451. 

The medical visitors made 4,371 visits. This nimiber in- 
cludes visits of investigation and inspection of homes of appli- 
cants for licenses, and examination of children in the office. 

The death-rate for the year was 8.7 per cent., — slightly less 
than last year, and the lowest but one since 1880, when the 
present system of caring for these infants was adopted. 

The Board continues to maintain a Xursery or temporary 
boarding-place, in Roxbury, where most of the infants are sent 
when first received, the matron being licensed to keep S infants. 
Infants remain in the Xursery generally but a short time, since 
it is important that they should be placed as early as possible 
in their permanent boarding places. Of the 285 infants re- 
ceived, 223 were admitted to the Nursery, 1 of whom died there. 

The ITor/i- of the Investigating Visitors. 
About two years ago the Board established the policy of 
making special investigations in the case of all applications for 
the care cf children made under section 36 of chapter 83 of the 



106 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Revised Laws, which provides that " The state board of charity 
may, in its discretion, upon the written application of the 
parent or guardian, or, if there is no parent or guardian, of a 
friend, of a child under the age of sixteen years who is dependent 
upon public charity, or upon written application of the overseers 
of the poor of the city or town in which such child is found, 
provide for his maintenance.'' 

More cases have been dealt with by the Investigating Visitors 
this year than last ; a larger proportion of the applicants has been 
helped to self-support or has been provided for by other 
agencies; and the scope of work has broadened. Investigation 
is now made of three classes of cases, viz., (1) applications for 
children to be taken in charge by the Board; (2) cases where 
the advice of the Board is sought regarding the disposition of 
children; (3) cases of proposed settlement of bastardy com- 
plaints under the provisions of section 19 of chapter 82 of the 
Revised Laws. In addition to this, a limited number of appli- 
cations for the release of children already in the custody of the 
Board have been considered. A special visitor has been added 
recently, whose duty it is to make plans either for the return 
of children to their homes or for the establishment of some con- 
nection with their relatives. This work has been in operation 
too short a period to admit of any statistical statement of it 
here. 

In connection with the cases of application, certain definite 
needs have become clear. One important need is more provision 
for the training of unmarried mothers who are incompetent, and 
often unwilling, to care for their babies. Frequently these 
women speak our language imperfectly, if at all ; are young, and 
have spent the few months they have been in this country doing 
factory or restaurant work, with no knowledge of housework. 
There is great need of opportunity for training of mothers with 
their infants. Under present conditions, the Board is often 
compelled to take children who would better be kept with their 
mothers. Another need is that of following up the parents of 
children received by the Board. Such supervision would result 
in better carrying out of plans and conditions made when the 
children are received, such as agreements to make payments to 
the Board. It would also facilitate the reconstruction of the 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 107 

homes, and thereby hasten the return of children to their natural 
protectors. 

Of the cases of children received since the beginning of this 
work, 28 have been taken up v^^ith a view to return, and as a 
result 10 children have been discharged to their own families; 
in 5 cases the recommendation was against a return ; and 13 are 
still under consideration. It is often desirable and practicable 
to return children where parents would not ask for their release 
unless they were first approached on the subject; for sometimes, 
through indifference, but more often through ignorance of pro- 
cedure, they lapse into contentment with existing conditions. 
Such families are usually grateful when the way is shown by 
which they may have their children back in the family life. 

Section 20 of chapter 83 of the Revised Laws provides that 
" The overseers of the poor of a city or town and the superin- 
tendent and board of trustees of the state hospital shall commit 
any indigent or neglected infants which have no known settle- 
ment in this commonwealth to the custody of the state board of 
charity ; " and by special agreement the Overseers of the Poor of 
Boston now commit no children under this law, without first 
giving the Board an opportunity to investigate the case. If all 
commitments under this law could be so dealt with, some chil- 
dren now supported by the Commonwealth might be better pro- 
vided for in other ways. 

The consultation cases represent a different phase of the 
work. It resembles somewhat that of a social service depart- 
ment, in that it guides the inquirer to the proper agencies or 
individuals whose province it is to solve the particular problem 
without taking a formal application. The signing of a formal 
application has an enervating effect on the parent, who may be 
in some doubt as to the wisdom or necessity of asking State care 
for his children. If, on the other hand, he is met from the start 
with the assurance that the office of the State visitor is to 
stimulate and assist him with friendly advice, he may go out to 
meet his obligations with renewed vigor. Of the 202 individual 
cases dealt with during the past year, Tl have since become ap- 
plications for State care, of which only IG have been found 
suitable. 

Though dealing primarily with applications of dependents, 



108 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

the work of the visitors is often concerned with cases that should 
properly come to the custody of the Board through the courts 
as neglected children. When such a case is presented, it is 
referred to the Overseers of the Poor, or to the Society for the 
Prevention of Cruelty to Children, to make the neglect charge in 
the proper court. Occasionally Overseers of the Poor or courts 
commit children who are not neglected in any but a technical 
sense, and who would more properly come into the care of the 
Board as dependents. In many cases it is better for a child to 
be received as dependent rather than committed as a neglected 
child, and this for several reasons: the stigma attached to the 
child is less in the case of dependency than of neglect ; the stigma 
attached to the parents is also less, and there is a better oppor- 
tunity for them to readjust themselves in the community and 
to keep their self-respect. Local responsibility gives more assur- 
ance of personal interest in the family, and develops wholesome 
community interest. The clause '^ dependent upon public 
charity " in the neglect law is so inclusive as to make possible 
the frustration of plans for keeping the family intact, unless 
there is cooperation between the Overseers of Poor, the courts, 
and this Board. 

Recently a Board of Overseers withdrew a neglect charge when 
it was shown that poverty alone, due to the unemployment of a 
handicapped father, was the reason for instituting neglect pro- 
ceedings against three children. Applications under section 36 
were substituted, and to-day the town is reimbursing the State 
for the care of these children as dependents, while the Overseers 
are seeking employment for the one-armed father. Overseers of 
the Poor of the following towns voluntarily reimburse the Board 
for the board of settled children: Brookline, Cambridge, Ded- 
ham, Everett, Gloucester, Lincoln, Maiden, Medford, 'New Bed- 
ford, Oxford, Salem, South Eramingham, Springfield, Woburn.

charity ... or kept under the control of . . . said board in 
said city or town, the commonwealth shall pay to said city or

This agreement entered into this first day of July, 1908, between 
the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, by Leontine Lincoln, Chair- 
man of the State Board of Charity, acting under authority of the 
vote of the Massachusetts State Board of Charity, a certified copy 
of w^hich is attached hereto, party of the first part, and the United 
States of America, by Geo. B. Billings, Commissioner of Immigra- 
tion at the Port of Boston, Massachusetts, acting under authority 
of the Act of Congress entitled '^ An Act to Regulate the Immigra- 
tion of Aliens into the United States,'* approved February 20, 1907, 
and letter No. 51841-32 of the Bureau of Immigration and Natural-

danger to life or public health if removed therefrom, suitable accom- 
modation and care for such aliens as become public charges by 
reason of accident or bodily ailment or disease, or physical or men- 
tal inability to earn a living; in cases of aliens who become such 
public charges from causes arising subsequent to the alien's arrival 
in the United States, such accommodation and care shall be provided 
until deportation or the expiration of one year after such alien's 
entry into the United States, and in the cases of aliens who become 
such public charges from causes existing prior to the alien's arrival 
in the United States, and whose deportation is ordered by the De- 
partment on a finding that they have become public charges from 
prior existing causes, such accommodation and care shall be provided 
from the date the party of the second part is notified by the party

MEETINGS OF THE BOARD. 
During the official year ending N^ovember 30, 1909, the Board 
held twenty meetings, viz., twelve regular monthly meetings, 
and eight adjourned and special meetings. The attendance of 
members at these meetings was as -follows: Mr. Lincoln, eight- 
een meetings; Miss Curtis, sixteen; Mr. Adams, sixteen; Mr. 
Tilley, nineteen; Mr. Johnson, sixteen; Mr. Brackett, seven- 
teen; Mr. Ratshesky, ten; Mr. Downey, eleven; Mrs. Sheffield,^ 
nine. There were, in addition, frequent meetings of the Execu- 
tive Committee and of the Standing Committees. The results 
of all these meetings is embodied in the foregoing report. 

Note. — Section 52 of eliapter 86 of the Revised Laws provides that 
"A child shall not be indentured, adopted or placed in charge of any 
person from a state institution until notice of an application therefor 
has been given to the state board of charity and until its report in 
writing, made after investigation into the propriety thereof, has been 
filed with such institution. All applications for the release or discharge 
of any children so indentured or placed in charge shall in like manner 
be given to the state board for its report." It may be questioned whether 
some modification of this law may not be advisable. 

1 Mrs. Sheffield was appointed in June, 1909.

Laws, as amended by chapter 402 of the Acts of 1903, that 
" a charitable corporation whose personal property is exempt 
from taxation under the provisions of clause three of section 
^ye of chapter twelve shall annually, on or before the first day 
of ITovember, make to the state board of charity a written 
or printed report for its last financial year, showing its prop- 
erty, its receipts and expenditures, the whole number and the 
average number of its beneficiaries and such other information 
as the board may require.'' 

Chapter 379 of the Acts of 1909 provides that: " The state 
board of charity, upon the request or with the consent of a 
charitable corporation which, under the provisions of section 
fourteen of chapter eighty-four of the Revised Laws, as amended 
by chapter four hundred and two of the acts of the year nine- 
teen hundred and three, is required to make an annual report to 
said board, shall, at least once in every year, visit and inspect 
the institution or investigate the work of such corporation." 

Of the 583 corporations whose reports were called for during 
the last official year, the following 14 failed to report : — 

Church Home for Orphan and Destitute Children, Boston. 

Frauen Verein, Boston. 

Free Home for Consumptives in the City of Boston, Boston. 

Jamaica Plain Neighborhood House Association, Jamaica Plain. 

Linath Hazedek Association of East Boston, East Boston. 

Massachusetts Infant Asylum, Jamaica Plain. 

Roxbury Homoeopathic Dispensary, Roxbury.

United Hebrew Civic Association of Fall River, Fall River. 

Young Men's Hebrew Association of Medford, Medford. 

Newburyport Howard Benevolent Society, Newburyport. 

Vineyard Haven Sanatorium, Vineyard Haven. 

This is a much better showing than ever before. Two j^ears 
ago there were 68 delinquent corporations, and a year ago there 
were 42. The result has been secured only by repeated remind- 
ers, persistent effort, and in some cases bj personal visitation. 
Among the 14 are some organizations of no little importance, 
and it is greatly to be regretted that they have neglected to make 
the required returns. 

The following 39 corporations reported that they were not in 
active operation, chiefly because they had not accumulated 
sufficient funds for the purpose : — 

Boston Newsboys' Aid Association, Boston.

For the Corporation. 



By means of this amended form the Board endeavored, in 
addition to the information hitherto obtained, to secure statis- 
tics regarding the number of beneficiaries received and dis- 
charged by the several corporations during the year, and the 
number at the beginning and the end of the year, as well as the 
total number aided during the year ; also the number similarly 
aided outside of the institutions. The result has not been as 
satisfactory as was hoped for, for two reasons: first, because 
many of the organizations do not keep their records in such 
a manner as to enable them to furnish all the required figures ; 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. vii 

and second, because a very large proportion of them give only 
one kind of aid, that is, either wholly institutional or wholly 
outside aid. For purposes of comparison and tabulation the 
figures have little or no value, but they are well worth con- 
sideration so far as many of the institutions are individually 
concerned. It is also to be noted that the new method has 
brought out a total report of a far larger number of beneficiaries 
than heretofore, apparently because it has led to the counting 
of out-patients of hospitals and other like institutions not 
formerly included in the number aided. 

The publication of these reports is not primarily or chiefly 
for the purpose of statistical information. It is for the purpose 
of acquainting persons interested, and the public in general, 
with the several charitable associations throughout the State ; in 
other words, it is for the purpose of issuing a directory of char- 
ities for the State, in very much the same way as has been done 
for many years by the Xew York State Board of Charities for 
the charitable associations of that State. A tabulation might be 
added to the present Report, and would undoubtedly be of con- 
siderable use, but it would greatly increase the size and expense 
of the Report. 

As regards the new law, cited above, requiring the Board to 
visit and inspect such corporations as request or consent to 
such visitation or inspection, the Board has been able, during 
the portion of the year elapsing since the passage of the law, 
to do little more than make preliminary inquiries. A cir- 
cular was sent out to each corporation, asking to be informed 
of its wishes in regard to the visitation provided for by the 
law. Of the corporations thus far replying, 279 have 
consented without qualification to be visited and inspected by 
the Board, 20 have replied that they see no necessity for such 
visitation, and 8 that their institutions were not yet opened. 
The following 5 have decidedly refused to be so visited: 
House of the Good Shepherd, Boston ; Incorporated Protectory 
of Mary Immaculate, Lawrence ; Institution of the Little Sisters 
of the Poor, Boston ; Salem Female Charitable Society, Salem ; 
Working Girls' Home and Home of the Grey Xuns, Boston. 

The Board is formulating a system of visitation and report 
which will satisfy the rrquirements of the law. 



viii STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. Part II. 

The total valuation of the 516 corporations making sub- 
stantially complete reports was $56,370,865.08, viz. : property 
owned and occupied for corporate purposes, $24,671,840.98 ; 
investments, $31,699,865.08. 

Their chief sources of income were: subscriptions and dona- 
tions, $2,106,431.61; bequests, $995,352.15; income from in- 
vestments, $1,556,114.30; paying and partly paying beneficia- 
ries, $2,075,776.45; sales and entertainments, $127,646.77; 
industries, $554,763.85. 

Their chief items of expense were: salaries and wages, 
$2,194,441.25; provisions and supplies, $2,174,449.06; re- 
pairs and improvements, $619,300.99. Their total disburse- 
ments were $7,856,363.38. 

The whole number of beneficiaries reported was 913,401, 
besides 4,486 families and 30 corporations. Of the individual 
beneficiaries, 171,372 were aided free, the remaining 742,029 
either paying or partly paying for the services rendered. 

The total number of employees, to whom the amount of 
$2,194,441.25 was paid in the form of salaries and wages, was 
6,797. 

Hospitals, homes, and institutions of a like nature providing 
beds for their beneficiaries, reported a total of 15,123 beds. 

The Board recommends, as a further measure of protection 
for the recipients of aid, and for the safeguarding of the 
public interest, that hereafter no certificate be issued by the 
Secretary of the Commonwealth for the incorporation of a 
charitable institution whose personal j^roperty is exempted from 
taxation under the provisions of the third clause of section five 
of chapter twelve of the Revised Laws, without the approval 
of the State Board of Charity.
